New Jersey led the way with $803 million, followed by Nevada with $660 million.  Indiana, a relative newcomer to the sector, brought in $230 million.

Nevada's entire gaming sector for October: Blackjack $60.2 million Craps $27.6 million Roulette $18.5 million Baccarat $59.3 million Sports $42.4 million Penny slots $250.0 million [Source: Nevada Gaming Control]
